Happy Saturday and Happy World Cardmaking Day!
I hope you get a little time to craft today, I know I will as hubby is away for the weekend! Hee Hee!
Today I have a new card for you to see and it's the world premiere of a Brand New Stamp that all you Magnolia fans are just going to have!
As I mentioned earlier in the week I am now on the new Design Team for The Pixie Cottage and I get a chance to play with the unreleased stamps before they go on general sale.
Well when I saw this wonderful door I just had to have it and I know you'll want to have it to for your upcoming Christmas cards.
You can see all the upcoming stamps at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More and I know you'll see some that will have to make their way to you!
This fantastic door is designed by Sandra Hammer and the details on it are just superb. I know that you'll agree it is perfect for your Christmas Edwin's and Tilda's and many others too! And it's due into the store around the end of the month so you'll have it in time for your Christmas projects. You can preorder it directly just here and your Tilda's and Edwin's will be sure to thank you!
Of course it wouldn't be me if there weren't some challenges involved so here goes.
Stamp With Fun started on off with a fabulous sketch
Simon Says Stamp had a color combo of Red and Green so it was obvious that I could use it for a Christmas card
A Spoon Full Of Sugar had the theme of Christmas
Christmas Stampin wanted to see 2 stamps used to make a scene
Storage Units Ink and More also wanted you to Create A Scene
ABC Challenge were at E for Embossing and I used a new Sizzix embossing folder with super snowflakes on it
Creative Card Crew had "All That Sparkles" as their theme and I made the snow extra sparkly!
My Time To Craft wanted Snow Buddies and I think Edwin looks a like the kind of buddy I'd like to have!
I used Edwin with Lantern and I love the fact that the door stamp has been made to match the Magnolia's in size.
The dp is Basic Grey from the both the Dasher and Fruitcake collections. I love the way that Basic Grey brings out a new Christmas line each year and that they coordinate with previous years!
I colored Edwin and the door with a selection of Copic's, Promarkers and Prismacolors. I colored him twice and popped up the second image for more dimension.
The snow is a combination of Diamond Stickles as a base and The Art Institute Ultra Fine glitter sprinkled on top.
The snowflakes and Believe are buttons from Jesse James.
I used an Emaginations patterned corner punch on all the corners.
I added an extra Edwin inside to the message mat.
Here's a close up of Edwin waiting by the fabulous door!
Anyway I'll be over at Paper Craft Planet for the Group Blog Hop later as I'll be playing along with the My Grafico gang! I'll be there from 7 - 8 EST so be sure to pop over and join in the fun!
